Washington: Cutting back on sleep could harm blood vessel function and breathing control, a new study has found.A bevy of research has shown a link between sleep deprivation and cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, and obesity.However, it`s been unclear why sleep loss might lead to these effects. Several studies have tested the effects of total sleep deprivation, but this model isn`t a good fit for the way most people lose sleep, with a few hours here and there.In a new study by Keith Pugh, Shahrad Taheri, and George Balanos, all of the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom, researchers test the effects of partial sleep deprivation on blood vessels and breathing control.They find that reducing sleep length over two consecutive nights leads to less healthy vascular function and impaired breathing control.
